Shakespeare in Love

Stage adaptation of the Academy Award-winning screenplay

Based on the screenplay by Marc Norman & Tom Stoppard
Adapted for the stage by Lee Hall
Directed by Jasson Minadakis

Young Will Shakespeare has writers block. That is, until he finds his muse – Viola. This beautiful young woman is Will’s greatest admirer and will stop at nothing to appear in his next play. In a classic case of mistaken identity and backstage theatrics, Will’s love for Viola quickly blossoms, inspiring him to write his first masterpiece.

This charming adaptation of the Academy Award-winning screenplay features live musicians and thirteen of the Bay Area’s favorite actors!
